President Obama wrote a letter last month to Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari calling for a quick expansion of military operations against insurgents in Pakistan’s tribal region.
The Washington Post reports that Zardari responded by saying that his government is determined to take action against al-Qaeda, the Taliban and other groups — but will do so according to Pakistani priorities.
Meanwhile, widespread anti-American sentiment appears to be growing in Pakistan, as the U.S. military expands its operations against the Taliban.
Will Pakistan actually crack down on militants operating along the border with Afghanistan?
